AIAW Champions

The 1976 Golden Rams stormed out of the gates, outscoring their opponents 27-1 over the first six games, led offensively by Pat Stauffer and Jane Glass. A wild come-from-behind tie against Ursinus that ended level at 3-3 was followed by two more ties in the next three games before West Chester won seven straight, including six by shutout, to win the EAIAW tournament and advance to the semifinals against Lock Haven. The two ended in another 1-1 tie, but West Chester advanced on strokes to the final, where they beat Ursinus 2-0. Thirteen of the 19 games were won by shutout behind goalie Lee Gerdes. Karen Shelton won the Honda Award, the first year the award was presented.
